There is an update post below the teaser trailer.
What a crazy month it has been. When I announced OPLegends last month, I had no idea how excited people would be for it. Given that we were able to reach 150 Discord members from just word of mouth alone, without even having a release date or feature set, is absolutely incredible. I'm glad to see that people are as passionate about this network's future as I am, and today I have plenty of updates to share with you all.
First, some great news. We have a release date! OPLegends Prison will be releasing July 18th at 3PM ET! To find that time in your own timezone, google "3PM ET" (Click Here)
With that being said, I have lots to show you about OPLegends Prison.
Wait, Prison?This might come as a surprise given the original plan was to do Skyblock first! Rest assured, Skyblock is still in development and I have plans to release it later this summer. With that being said, we have received feedback from many that they would love to see a Prison gamemode done by us. After considering our goals and ambitions with Skyblock, it makes more sense to me to have this Prison gamemode ready first: I firmly believe what we have will set us far above any other prison server that exists.
Payouts For this first map, we are offering PayPal + Buycraft payouts to the top 5 plot owners on /plot top! Here is the breakdown:
Plot Top #1: $50 PayPal + $30 Buycraft
Plot Top #2: $20 PayPal + $20 Buycraft
Plot Top #3: $15 PayPal + $15 Buycraft
Plot Top #4: $10 PayPal + $10 Buycraft
Plot Top #5: $5 PayPal + $5 Buycraft
A quick overview of some Prison featuresWe will have a full announcement with a complete changelog next Saturday. In the meantime, I'd like to share a short overview with some of our best, most unique features:
Plenty of Currencies!Prison is always more fun when there's different dynamics to the economy. With that in mind, we have settled upon 4 currencies which will be in use.
- Money: Earned by mining, used for ranking up and prestiging.
- Orbs: 1 block mined = 1 orb. They are used for applying Pickaxe Enchants
- EXP: 1 block mined = 1 EXP. Spawner and /warp mobmine monsters also drop EXP. It is used in the /expshop, where you can buy super rare items, crate keys, and more. I like to think of EXP as the Prison equivalent to Mob Coins on our server. It's pretty fun to grind EXP and earn crazy rewards for it.
- Coins: This is the one you may not have seen before. Coins are the rarest and hardest to obtain currency. You have a chance of earning them while mining, but the best way to get them is by grinding spawners, farms, or the /warp mobmine. Coins are the main currency used in /shop, /ah, and other player-to-player sales. One of the hardest parts of Prison is figuring out how much things are worth. Is your pickaxe and gear worth 10 million? 10 trillion? 10 quintillion? The large numbers get hard to understand really quickly. To solve this, Coins are used. Now you can know for sure that a good diamond helmet is worth 1,000,000 coins, for example. I hope the addition of this coins economy makes Prison easier to understand for people who may not have played Prison before.
Plots!Our server is a cool and unique mix between the original Prison gamemode that everyone used to love and the features that modern Prison servers offer today. There is no better example of this perfect hybrid than our Plots system!
Players have expressed how much they love plots compared to cells, and I agree. With that being said, the Plots system that is typically on Prison servers was very outdated. To remedy this, our custom Plot system is the best of both worlds!
Every player can claim a plot and be a member of other peoples' plots. On top of this, there is a /plot GUI as well as /plot perms to allow you to customize what actions are allowed and denied on your plot. I believe this system is the best available, and I hope you all will agree when you are able to check out the server!
State-of-the-art Prison Ranks and PrestigesPart of what makes our Prison server the best is our ability to do everything better than other Prison servers. A great example of this is our ranks and prestiges system. Everything about it is designed to be easy and quick to use.
From being able to quickly /rankup max or /prestige max to being able to view your Rank progression in a cool /ranks GUI, this is all designed with convenience in mind. Additionally, you can also use /mine quickly to get to the farthest mine you have access to! Everything about it is convenient and fun.
CRAZY Pickaxe Enchants!While I won't be sharing everything about our pickaxe enchants (I want to leave some stuff about the server to surprise!), I can show the following sneak peek and share the following information: There will be 10+ pickaxe enchants which all have wicked effects. There will also be a system in place to get super rare enchants using prestige tokens (the currency obtained by prestiging) which make your pickaxe far above and beyond anything else which could normally be obtained.
Additionally, all your blocks mined autosell, so you don't have to worry about inventory management! You can just sit down and grind out the prison mines.
Mob MineThe most-loved feature of Skyblock is coming to prison! There are two mines in the warzone: One which is a standard prison mine where PvP is enabled, and another mob mine, like on Skyblock, where there are regenerating ores and OP mobs (PvP is disabled in the Mob Mine). Drops obtained from these mobs sell for coins, and are a great way to grind out coins to improve your plot!
PvP events and mechanics!The warzone/warp pvp will have some pretty crazy events going on in it! From the PvP mine (which can be used to obtain lots of money and orbs), to the mob arena, to the KOTH event, PvP will be fun and rewarding on Prison!
Additionally, we are introducing boss spawns in the PvP zone! At this crazy boss mob pit, boss mobs will frequently spawn. They will carry overpowered rewards to any who dare to fight them.
Are you excited?I hope you're as excited for this release as I am. Lots of development will continue up until release, so I will be sharing additional sneak peeks and announcements next week and the week after up until our release.
I hope the wait was worth it, and I can't wait to see the crazy things OPLegends wil accomplish this summer!
